Default Deer Camp members

I was curious the amount of people whom belong to deer camps. I have hunted alone or with friends for the past 10 years on public land. Two years ago I joineda small deer camp and love the experience. For me going to deer camp is just as much fun as hunting. I enjoy the fellowship with the other hunters, being able to share sightings, and listening to there days hunt while setting around the old wood stove.

Deer camp is the only reason I drive an hour to hunt during rifle season, otherwise I'd just go out behind my house. Right after dark when everyone is back at camp, cracking a cold one, cooking supper and each talking about the days happens IMO can't be beat.

We have a camp but it is just comprised of friends and family. My grandpa built a cabin in the 30's and that to this day is our deer camp. We have thought about moving the camp closer to home where we have land but it just isn't the same as going north for the 9 day gun hunt. We would have a better shance of getting deer closer to home but it isn't about gettinga deer for us.

Archery is by myself, but one week a year I drive 2.5hrs to a camp (where there aren't many deer) to gunhunt with a great bunch of guys, sleep with the dogs, and attend the Annual Bag Lickers Ball (its just a name) for some hard drinking and good ol fiddle music.

I currently just hunt on my dad's land. When my son gets older (he is three now), I will join a club if he gets into hunting. Otherwise, I would not go enough to pay for the dues.

My dad, grandpa, cousin, and me are all in a big deer camp in perryville arkansas. We drive 2 and a half hours to go there, usually every weekend when season is in, and for a week during thanksgiving. We love to go for all of the other same reasons mentioned above, except in this camp there is no alcohol allowed. The timber company has strict rules. After the days hunt we all come back to a nice camp fire and sit around it and talk about what we see and past huntin stories. You cant be deer camp.
